Lantra launches work experience guide

Lantra Sector Skills Council is offering a free 'all you need to know guide' to work experience.

The guide, titled 'Guidance for employers: Getting involved in work experience and work-related learning', gives clear advice on issues from health and safety considerations, to liability and disclosure checks.

"We created this guide because we understand the fundamental role work experience plays," said Lantra qualifications and curriculum development manager Liz Pridgeon.

"It is more important than ever that learners gain the skills, qualifications and experience they need to meet the demands of the future workforce. Employer involvement plays a key role in helping learners meet these demands.

"Getting involved with work experience not only benefits the learners but it’s also beneficial for businesses and organisations too. They can help sustain an organisation by being an invaluable source of additional cost-effective labour, and can bring fresh ideas. In addition, it can be a great way of recruiting future employees. I strongly recommend employers download their free copy and start using it today."
